I do not know if you have ever realized, but every stylish party you have ever attended or every fashionable street you have ever walked, what is one of the main things you notice? It is not only the fashion or the beautiful faces, but even more so the sight of fumes been blown into the atmosphere. Not from cars or heaters, but from the mouths and cigarettes of rather stylish people. Have you ever wondered why people who you think would know better do this?
They keep their bodies in shape, eat the best foods, exercise three times a week and attend monthly yoga sessions; they are avid advocates of good health and physical fitness. Yet they smoke! Almost every party I have ever attended or when I walk through the streets of NYC on a regular basis, these are the people you see smoking. The ones who you think should be asking you where is the nearest Whole Foods Market. They are slim, model physique (not anorexic), great complexion, and as we have established, the fashion is always on point. But, they walk around with a pack of Marlboro in their purses or pockets.
I have come to the conclusion that most fashionable people smoke because they consider it cool. Smoking, although dangerous to your health makes you look like you are someone with a mysterious personality. It gives you that narrow look in the eyes, and makes you look even sexier when you twist your lips to blow out the side-stream smoke. It adds a different element to the character and gives onlookers something to think about, something to question.
Smoking is bad for our health. I have only tried it once, and from that day I knew it was going to be the first and the last. I just think its contradictory to one’s self to lead a healthy, stylish life, yet shorten your life span by smoking a blunt, putting nicotine into your system, or even as simple as getting your nice outfit all stink. But, in fashion we all know, to each his own. We are our own individuals, so if that is a part of what makes you YOU, then who am I to judge.
